After the heavy post I wrote before this, I thought I'd leave you all with something lighter. Before I go to bed tonight I thought I'd just freak out a little over the fact that I leave for Guyana in one week!
A few months from now, this moment will seem so quaint, and this little ol' me sitting here at my mother's computer in West Texas will seem so naive. But right now, I'm just anxious and excited. I'm already there, so to speak.
The Country Desk Officer for South America sent out an e-mail a couple days ago asking who would like to hear from other Guyana Invitees before we leave. I put my e-mail on that list, and tonight I've received a bunch of e-mails from about 10 people who will be in my training group. It's wonderful to be able to get a "sneak peek," so to speak. It's quite a diverse crowd, but we all have one thing in common: we're going to Guyana together in one week. We might all be scattered across the country, but each of us is going through the same thing.
